Photo of the Week: Ergonomics in Space, the Final Frontier

Photo: NASA astronaut Heidi Piper

NASA astronaut Heidi Piper tests a new life sciences glove box designed by David Rempel, professor of mechanical engineering at Berkeley and medicine at UCSF. The glove box will isolate biological materials from the astronauts during experiments on the space station. Some astronauts have experienced muscle fatigue and pain during long hours of work in a glove box in space. NASA astronauts visited the Richmond Field Station ergonomics lab for several weeks to test a new glove box designed to reduce shoulder muscle loads in a simulated zero-gravity environment.
